On his official Twitter artist George Evangelista posted an incredible concept image of the upcoming ‘The Flash’, an adaptation directed by Andy Muschietti (‘It: The Thing’).
The art features Michael Keaton as Batman and Ezra Miller as the titular character, in addition to being based on the DC FanDome promotional promotion.
It’s worth remembering that Ben Affleck will reprise his role as the Dark Knight in the feature film – the announcement of which has many fans wondering what prompted him to make the decision.
During an interview with Vanity Fair, producer Barbara Muschietti said the star dropped the character because he was going through a bad time, but is now ready to relaunch the DCEU Batman.
“There was a lot of speculation and things he said about having trouble playing Batman, and it was difficult for him. I think he gave up because he was going through a tough time in his personal life. When we approached him, he seemed to be at a different time. He was very open to the idea [de reprisar o papel], which was a surprise to us. “We are all human and we go through difficult situations. I’m glad he’s now interested in returning, as Batman’s presence will be fundamental and exciting, while having a fun twist.
In the same interview, director Andy Muschietti (“ It: The Thing ”) explained what makes the Batman version of Affleck so important to the character’s legacy.
“Ben Affleck’s Batman has a dichotomy that’s very strong, which is his masculinity – because of his looks, the towering figure he has, and his jawline – but he’s also vulnerable. He needs a story that highlights this contrast, this balance.
The filmmaker also spoke about the importance of the hero in the plot.
“Ben Affleck’s Batman is a very important part of the emotional impact of the film. Affleck’s interaction and relationship between Barry and Wayne will bring an emotional level that we have never seen before. It’s Barry’s movie, it’s Barry’s story, but his characters are more connected than you think. The two lost their mothers to murder, and that’s one of the emotional fires of the film. This is where Affleck’s Batman kicks in.
He added that:
“The film is a bit of a pivotal point in the sense that it presents a story that involves a unified universe where all the cinematic iterations we’ve seen before hold true. […] It is inclusive in the sense that it says that everything you have seen exists and everything you will see exists, in the same unified multiverse.
Rumors also indicate that Michael Keaton will reprise the role, as he played the hero in two films directed by Tim Burton: “Batman” (1989) and “Batman: The Return” (1992).
It should be remembered that the feature made its debut. Instead of hitting theaters on July 1, 2022, the film will now be released on June 3, 2022.
The plot will show Barry Allen / The Flash (Ezra Miller) traveling through time to prevent the murder of his mother. However, when he returns to the present, his mother is still alive…. but the world is a nightmare. The Justice League never existed and Barry must do everything to correct all of its flaws.
